My mom and I stayed here recently after a long road trip. It was just a stop for us to sleep before our journey home. I am a Choice Rewards member and I used my points for a free night. The folks at the front desk were friendly and the beds were comfortable. The only problem I had with this... More

We were traveling and it was late and needed a place to rest our heads. This is your basic hotel, no frills, just a place to sleep. Bed was comfortable and room was clean. Breakfast is very basic,waffles,fruit and box donuts. Great place for the price. Staff was very friendly.

My wife and I were on a trip back from Ohio and decided to give this place a try, BIG MISTAKE!! and if we weren't so tired from traveling we would've sought another place to stay. If I were the choice hotel group I would drop this place off the list! DISGUSTING!!

Wow, I ignored the reviews and shouldn't have. First room I was in was exactly what I didn't pay for. It had two beds: one was way too soft, but the other had a sort-of firm mattress. The TV was an old tube. Toilet kept running. The door frame and lock weren't secure. There was a small centipede crawling up... More

Came in late (midnight). Hotel clerk (tattoo showing on her chest) was knowledgeable and helpful. Recommend company polo or t-shirt for help Everything in the room was fine. Between 12 & 1am I heard a few people coming & going in the parking lot (which was dimly lit), which insinuated to me illegal activity. Wouldn't be real comfortable with my... More

We stayed here for one night on our way to Nashville. I was able to book a free night with Choice Rewards points. Even though it was free, it was not good. The desk clerk, Chris, was very friendly and helpful. We had been booked into a smoking room even though I requested non-smoking, and he changed it quickly. The... More

Dear eagle watcher, Please accept our sincere apology regarding the bathroom issues the tub non slip mat and the hair on the bath room floor.

I stay in hotels 300 + nights yearly and this hotel is one I'm glad to warn you about. The staff is friendly but after that checkin, watch out.

I believe I stayed in room 218. The room smelled. The towel I used to dry off after my shower literally flaked as I dried myself off. The tub had mildew on the bath mat. The sheet on the bed were only tucked in about 1" on the top and came undone in the middle of the night. I'm 6'1"... More
